August Connections Event- Self Defense for Women!

August 20th, 2013

Self Defense for Women!

Are you curious about self defense and the martial arts?

Have you ever felt threatened, scared, or worried about your personal safety?

Your natural instincts let you know when there’s danger. We can show you simple, effective responses to the most common situations. In this mini workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Take simple steps to improve your Personal Safety Quotient
  • Project confidence and avoid becoming a victim in the first place.
  • Respond effectively in case you do find yourself in a physically threatening situation.
  • Be better equipped to handle bullies at school, work, and in every day life.

This is an interactive workshop. As time allows, we will demonstrate basic techniques, and you will get a chance to try out simple, easy steps in a safe and supportive environment.
Presented by
Debbie Winters and Larisa Benson from the US Martial Arts Center

Debbie Winters is a third-degree black belt in Taekwondo and senior instructor at the U.S. Martial Arts Center.

Larisa Benson earned her first-degree black belt in Taekwondo from Grand Master Young-Hak Lee at the US Martial Arts Center. She teaches leadership and effective group dynamics at the University of Washington Evans School of Public Affairs and is a consultant with The Athena Group.

The US Martial Arts Center is consistently voted best in Western Washington, and proudly serves hundreds of South Sound children, adults, families and our communities. Our main goal is to not just teach students how to kick and punch, but it to promote strong character development. Confidence, respect, integrity, patience and discipline are key ingredients to becoming a martial artist, as well as a successful person.
